Regional mapping activities in the Southeastern Wisconsin Region have involved planning agencies at both the regional and local level. The Southeastern Wisconsin Regional Planning Commission, as the official planning agency for the seven-county area, has collected and prepared resource and planning-related mapping since 1963. Over the years, the Commission has acquired and developed a regional geographic information system of digital mapping that includes land use, environmental corridors, and other spatial data essential to the planning process.
New Interactive Web Mapping Application
The new Southeastern Wisconsin Regional Planning Commission Interactive Mapping Application provides access to planning and resource maps of the Southeastern Wisconsin Region. This new mapping application offers access to region-wide planning maps and orthophotography.
Currently, the maps available on the Interactive Mapping Application include:
Land Use, Environmental Corridors, Wetlands, Soils,
Orthophotography, Municipal Boundaries
At the local level, every county and many city, village, and town governments in the Southeastern Wisconsin Region have developed digital mapping capabilities as part of their planning activities. These municipalities maintain a variety of maps, including topographic, real property boundary line (parcel), and planning-related mapping, for use in their administrative and planning functions.
